Coconut oil viral illness benefits are wide and far reaching. Coconut oil provides relief against the common cold virus all the way to killing HIV, the AIDS virus.
Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) are the powerhouse nutrients that make coconut oil such an amazing virus terminator.
MCFAs are so potent that they are the primary component in mother's milk that protects infants from infections while their immune systems are still developing.
To date, there is no chemical (natural or man-made) that we know of that has an antiviral spectrum as wide as that of coconut oil's.
Published medical studies show that MCFAs richly found in coconut oil kill viruses that cause the following illnesses:
Medical research has identified a number of disease-causing organisms that are inactivated by coconut oil's MCFAs. Below are some of the viruses reported in the medical literature:
Jon Kabara, Ph.D., former professor emeritus of chemistry and pharmacology at Michigan State University, who studied the effects of MCFAs on human health for 50 years, had this to say about coconut oil.
"It is rare in the history of medicine to find substances that have such useful properties and still be without toxicity or even harmful side effects."
Now who can argue with that? After all, MCTs are an essential ingredient of breast milk.
Whether you use it for food preparation or by the spoonful, coconut oil will help your body fight against a wide spectrum of viruses, especially lipid-coated ones. And yes, MCFA-rich coconut oil also kills bacteria, fungi, parasites, protozoa, etc.
Natural, simple and safe. What an ideal way to deal with viral illnesses, don't you think?
